Hey everyone!!!
 
It's been a while since I've been in... and I have a crazy question for ya.  For the past 3 to 4 weeks my foot, welll my heal has been vibrating with nothing touching it.  It doesn't hurt, or feel like your foot is asleep.. it feels like I have my phone next to my foot and its vibrating.  I'm not sure how else to describe it.  Has anyone had any part of your body do that???
 
Thanks in advance,
 
Trouble yeah

I don't know what it could be but I would sure call and get an appt with my dr nd get this checked out. It may be nothing or could be the beginning of something, either way you need to know. My first thought is maybe a nerve that is irritated, but I am not a dr either so merely guessing.

Let us know what you find out....Susie

Make sure to make a note of this and to let your doctor know next time your in to see him/her. and
maybe ask about a foot x-ray or mri to make sure everything is okay...Keep us posted on this as we do care...

TroubleMaker, I think I would try getting an appointment or referral to a neurologist. It could be allot of things that would cause the vibration feeling in your legs and feet, you have listed that you have some bad disk at L5 it could be caused by your back, or it could be something else entirely!  Even if by chance it goes away, I would still see a doctor about it.
 
Good luck to you, and please keep us posted on what you find out.

I have a similar problem in that I feel this light vibration below my knees and feet. Also can hear
a faint, low frequency sound; approximately 30 Hz. This all started after I completed my Chemo
treatment several years ago. Have mentioned it to several Doctors but they offer no opinion.

Hello MesaBill and welcome to the chronic pain forum at HW.

First let me say this is an older thread and we love to meet all new members here and many times your post gets looked over in a thread like this one where some of the original posters are no longer here.

If you would go to "post new topic " at the top of the page and make a introduction post you will get members stopping in to welcome you and offer their experiences and advice to whatever questions you may have.

Remember we are not Drs but chronic pain patients with years of experience who try to help others who suddenly find themselves dealing with chronic pain and all that entails.

Welcome and as for your question? It certainly sounds as if its nerve related. Finding out what nerves are involved will probably require the experience of a good Board certified Neurologist.

Looking forward to hearing more about you.

I've had the same feeling standing on solid pavement. It felt like the parking lot was shaking slightly. It was confusing until I realized it was just part of the whole group of symptoms coming from my spine and had nothing to do with my feet or legs. I've had nerve testing (EMG) and have no nerve damage.

I get back pain, muscles and also spine. The worst is the itching, pins and needles (tingling) in the feet and calves. Calf cramps and hip pain hurt the worst.

I've had relief with various spinal injections for years.

I am wondering, give you have had ruptured disks, if the vibrating you may be experiencing may be due to sciatica? I had pseudo-sciatica due to trigger points pressing on the sciatic nerve and I felt like my feet would "buzz" on and off throughout the day! It drove me nuts!

Good luck!
